The Jug of Manas is the waterfall that is directly above the Cup of Manas climb. There is a small 4ish meter section between the two, but it isn't a challenge at all and can easily be free climbed.

The actual climb starts pretty mellow but gets just less than vertical. It goes straight up the gorge and then turns the corner right. It isn't a super challenging route as it has lots of good rests, but it is nice and long at just under 60 meters. It can be lead it one long pitch, but it might be a better idea to split it up into 2 pitches.


Above Cup of Manas. You can't miss it.


You'll need a bunch of screws, plus enough to make an anchor with at the end.

Also, for a rappel anchor, there is a tree at the top left of the waterfall that will get you down.
